TUP1000: PC/104 Single Board Ultracapacitor UPS

Manufacturer: Tri-M Technologies



Single Board PC/104 Power Supply & Ultracapacitor UPS

The TUP1000 is a Small Form Factor DC-DC converter using ultra capacitors versus batteries to provide seamless UPS backup capabilities. This high performance power supply can produce 35 watts @ +5VDC or 42 Watts @ +12VDC.

The PC/104 footprint design supports many low power embedded systems requiring short-term power during a power loss.

The TUP1000 has a fully programmable power output of +4.5VDC to +12.6VDC - its rugged design includes transient suppression and locking terminal mating plugs.
